As this is WildMassGuessing for Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail, beware of blatant, unmarked spoilers.

The knights just happened to go in a complete circle, putting them ''behind'' the French's castle.

[[WMG: The woman was actually a witch]]
Clearly, real-world logic isn't applicable to the Python-verse, so maybe Bedevere's InsaneTrollLogic is actually correct, and witches are made of wood and weigh the same as ducks. The woman does seem to be the same weight as the duck, so perhaps she is in fact a witch.

[[WMG: Prince Herbert's fiance isn't actually named "Princess Lucky"]]
The king of Swamp Castle is constantly getting his own son's name wrong, so it's not far-fetched to assume that he's overall not too good with names. It's likely that the princess's name is ''Lucy,'' and the king either mixes it up with the common dog name Lucky, or he was informed of the princess's name in writing and read "Lucy" as "Lucky" (it wouldn't be far-fetched for the absent-minded king to be illiterate either, especially in the Middle Ages).

[[WMG: The king of Swamp Castle is Dennis from {{Film/Jabberwocky}}]]

Both movies seem to take place in the same world, and both characters are played by Michael Pailin.

Dennis's attitude at the end of "Jabberwocky," when he is forced against his will to marry a princess instead of the woman he "loves," is the reason for his cynical attitude as the Swamp King when ordering his son Herbert to accept the same fate. He tries to do right by his son by at least selecting a princess who is "beautiful," which, to Dennis/Swamp King, means a heavy-set girl similar to Griselda. Note also that Prince Herbert takes after his mother, the princess from "Jabberwocky," from the blond hair to the delusional obsession with being rescued from a tower by a prince.

The fact that Prince Herbert reminds Dennis so much of the princess he never wanted to marry is a large part of why he is so emotionally abusive to Herbert; another reason is, that's how ''Dennis's father'' treated him in "Jabberwocky," so as far as Dennis knows, that's how fathers are supposed to be.

Also, note that when the Swamp King tells his son how he built Swamp Castle, he doesn't say, "my ''father'' said it was daft to build a castle in the swamp," he says, "the ''king'' said it was daft to build a castle in the Swamp." The "king" in question is not Swamp King's father, but the king from "Jabberwocky," who made him marry his daughter and gave him half his kingdom. Dennis doesn't inherit the whole kingdom, only ''half.'' In other words, Dennis's kingdom is a brand new nation, that presumably needs a new castle. It is after Dennis's marriage to the princess, when he and the king are working out Dennis's new kingdom, when they have their disagreement on Dennis's decision to build a castle in the swamp.

[[WMG: Patsy isn't his name -- it's his [[BeleagueredAssistant job title.]]]]
So it is with all the other knights' attendants/steeds. At least Lancelot, despite his [[TheBerserker Berserker]]-ness, was kind enough to give his Patsy an actual name.
